The catfish strips are very delicious. Best coleslaw in town!!! Very affordable. Great service. If you’ve not eaten at Davids you’re missing out.

Excellent food, but was slightly overpriced. Sweet and creamy Coleslaw, Catfish was fresh, Jumbo Shimp was very good. All in all, a good dinner.

I am sorry - I did not ask that question - I would make a call to the restaurant - because we went 6 months ago, even if I knew what they used then - might not be true today. Thanks.

We invite you to visit us and enjoy the best Mississippi Catfish and Gulf Seafood found anywhere. David's in Milton is your place for good ole "comfort food." Everything is prepared the old fashioned way...hand battered in a light cornmeal batter for the fish, and light flour batter on the shrimp, oysters and crab claws. Our secret recipes are made from scratch and everything is cooked to your order and always served fresh. We don't have a microwave oven in the building!
